Your Word

Why do we need to carry the Word of God in our hearts? Why do we need to teach the Word of God? Why do we need to obey the Word of God? Mark 13:28-31

Lord, Your eternal Word gives life, restores lives, and transforms lives; thank You for calling us to teach and preach Your Word.

Lord, thank You for calling us to preach and teach Your eternal Word, we cherish the Word as the lamp unto our feet and light unto our paths.

Preparation

What is it that we are entrusted to do but cannot do because we don’t pray? Do we ask Jesus why we cannot do something? What will be our response to His reply?  Mark 9:14-29

Lord, every day we need You, need to be in Your presence, need to listen  You more than yesterday.

Lord, thank You for entrusting us with things that are beyond our own power or abilities, but we commit to spend time in Your presence so that You can use us.

Who Stood in the Gap for You

Will you be the person who will stand in the gap so that the plan of God for our community will come to pass? How will we rekindle people’s  passion for God? How will you let go of the pain of people’s disobedience to transform them to dream with God? Exo 34:29-Exo 35,36

Lord, forgive us as we are often imprisoned in the memories of the unpleasant events of the past that we cannot dream with God of what You could for with our community.

Lord, thank You for all who stood in the gap for us regardless of the pain our actions might have caused them so that now we could be part of Your dreams for our community.

We Join with You!

Have you wondered why God would confront a  person whom we think as not worthy of His forgiveness?  They may reap what they sow, but why God would give them a chance to change the destiny? Have you become like Jonah in this matter? Gen 28:10-20

Lord, we don’t understand fully all that You do in this world: so when You mould someone whom we see as less worthy of Your grace, we want to be Your finger, Your feet, Your eyes and ears in the process.

Lord, when You choose a person to shape him/her to play a pedestal role in the Kingdom of God, we don’t want to rebel against You just because we don’t agree with Your choice of the person

Carrying the Vision of the Godly

When a godly person entrusts you with responsibility, how will you respond? Will we  depend on God for direction? Can we pray for success in our day to day activities? Gen 24

Lord, when You place us  strategically to carry out dreams of godly people, we will do it diligently with continued trust in God; give us success.

Lord, if we are called just to carry out dreams You have given to godly people, give us humility and submission to fulfill it; You will reward the faithfulness of such people.

Your Visit

Why does God wait to give an answer till we feel like “worn out” or “old”? When one day feels like 100 days what will we do? Will He visit us with the answer for which we ask, seek, and knock? Gen 18:10-15, Matt 7: 7-12

Lord, today be the day of Your visit to reinstate us, to reassure Your promise, to rekindle hope in You before we sink into more temptation, desperation, and confusion.

Lord, when we feel “worn out” and “old” You not only surprise us with Your visit but also rekindle in us the passion to be Yours and to stay in Your plan.

Being Part of His Team

Have you wondered why a man whose heart was moved was needed to gather a group whose hearts are moved by God? Are you willing to take a journey to uncertainty if God moves your heart? Will you be part of God’s team to fulfill His promise if you have to let go of familiar place and lifestyle? Ezra 1



Lord, let us either be the person whose heart is moved to initiate many into Your team or among the group whose hearts are moved to journey to unknown lands to fulfill Your promise.

Lord, we know that  it is in Your mercy that You count us among those whose hearts are moved to be part of Your team to work towards fulfillment of Your promise in our generation, let us leave behind familiar space and life to walk towards uncertainty.
